1/1 Photo of Kittencal's Baked Cheesy Mashed Potato Patties/Croquettes
Since I make these all the time I really don't even bother to measure, the ingredient amounts listed are close to the amounts I usually use you can adjust the amounts to taste, I have left the Parmesan as optional I like to add it in --- for the best texture the potatoes must be russet and they should be oven-baked --- I have use panko in place of the butter crackers but I think the crackers give a better taste --- yield is only estimated depending on the size you make the croquettes --- you may make the mashed potato mixture up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerate until ready to roll and bake ----- you will love these!
